Electro Bamako is dead-centre cutting-edge world music, being an eclectic and uncompromising combination of African and Euro-American performing traditions. So you get the African melodies and words, that wonderful rhythmic lilt that the West African states are so adept at, plus the studio production techniques and improvisatory practices of Urban Western man circa 2000. Just reading the musician credits tells it own revealing story about this particular combination of elements: vocals, guitars, balafon, n'goni, cello, piano, saxophone, trumpet, bass and treatments are just a selection of the full line-up. Mamani Keita has a voice and a method of delivery that does justice to her family's status in African music, while Marc Minelli produces convincing musical backdrops for her to perform within. The rhythms are hypnotising, the texture of the music sensuous but beautifully patterned and coloured. The album can be enjoyed on many different listening levels and in equally diverse audio environments, though it's best heard loud. The long and informative booklet notes are all in French, by the way. --Keith Shadwick

I generally enjoy the blend of African and Black American music styles, and this album is no exception. It blends the quintessential Malian string and percussion instruments, with Jazz, techno, reggae and some hip-hop like mixing. I LOVE the 'Street Car Named Desire' reference.
I don't have many, well, actually ANY technical terms to use as the other posters, but it's good music. I love it. I think you will too. Buy the album.
